John: Yes, Branagh's _Much Ado_ is available on video. I got mine by selling
my soul to the Columbia House Video Club, but you can probably get a copy
for somewhere around $30 or so.
 
Cheers,

I got my "Ado" from Columbia House Video Club, 1400 North Fruitridge Ave., P.O.
Box 1111, Terre Haute, IA 47811 as part of a package. There's a toll free no.
1-800-262-2001 for information. I have also seen it in the Playboy Video
catalogue; and last March on this network someone announced it, I think, as
available from their local video store for about $29.95. My package price was
more like $19.95, but I bought a bundle under the agreement. Cheers, NR.

Dear Diana, I'm not surprised that you're confused about the "release date" of
the CBC SHREW starring Len Cariou and Sharry Flett. There was the original 1981
stage production reviewed in SQ (33.2) by Ralph Berry; the 1985 educational
cassettes based on the production (which are listed separately in my
videography--item 606, pg. 280); and the 1986 television transmission on CBC
reviewed  by Herb Coursen in his SHAKESPEARE ON TELEVISION (pg. 286+). I'm
always glad to hear about problems like this in the event that there's ever a
second edition. Yours for total clarification, Ken Rothwell
